For a test, I ran FM on 40m with a buddy.  I was mobile on I-10 between 
San Antonio and Houston, he was near Lake Charles.  The band was in 
decent shape and he was 20/S-9, on ssb.  went to FM, running around 300w 
out of the mobile, and I think he was somewhere near a kW... once the 
squelch was set, it was just like talking simplex on 2m FM.  but, we 
didn't stay there long, because there was 10 other people gathered on
